Last week, I was offered and accepted a new job at the bank. My new rold begins on January 3, and I am very excited to begin a new challenge in my professional life! My office will be moving to a different building across town. I have worked with this group for 9 years, and have many close friendships in this group. I know they will endure despite my promotion. They all want to know how they will get their roses, come Spring!
Each Monday, I participate in an online chat on Twitter. #Gardenchat is the hashtag, if you tweet. It is held every Monday at 8 p.m. CST. This chat is hosted by Bren @BG_Garden. Her blog is http://www.bggarden.com/. Each week there is a different topic. It is a great way to meet other gardeners and receive some expert advice. I hope you will consider joining this conversation. You can find me on Twitter @redneckrosarian. All of my blog posts automatically “tweet” on twitter, and I also add other stuff in as well…
The topic for last nights #gardenchat was “Resolutions for the new year”.
Below are a few of mine:
- Water Less, Mulch More
- Only use organic fertilizers
- Search for non-chemical sprays for fungus and insects
- Give as many roses away as I can, for as long as I can, to as many as I can.
What are your resolutions for the coming year in the garden? Life?
I wish each of you a very happy and most prosperous new year!
